Looking for any info on these two families in Kansas. Believe my ggrandparents Fred THUDIUM and Hanna SUGHRUE were married about 1913, and had two sons, Frederick born Jan. 1915 and Frances born Dec. 1916. Both sons were born in KS, and the family lived there until approximately 1938 when they moved to CA. I believe both these families could have come to KS from MO.

I am looking for more information on Alice Arabella McCLOUD, and her husband Dwight Elias FRAZIER. She was born 3 June 1863, Indiana, died 11 Feb. 1948 Pueblo, Pueblo, Colorado. He was born 1861, Kansas, died 8 Oct 1888, Kansas. They were married in Dec. 1880 in Kansas. I suspect they were from the Douglas County area as their daughter Cora Mae was born in Alfred, Douglas Co., Kansas on 9 Mar. 1882, Married 28 Dec. 1904 to Lloyd Edward WOODWARD in Lawrence, Douglas Co, Kansas, Died 12 Apr. 1971 Pueblo, Pueblo Co., Colorado. Lloyd Edward WOODWARD was born 22 Feb. 1880, Belvoir, Douglas Co., Kansas, Died 23 July 1962, Pueblo, Pueblo Co., Colorado

I have quite a bit of information about the WOODWARDS and related families.
